Summary
"The term human engineering has come into common use in recent years to refer to the adaptation for human use of work equipment, work space, work environments, and, to some extent, consumer products. While the term is a relatively new one, this does not imply that human engineering is a new development in human life. In one sense human engineering is as old as man, since human beings have always attempted to adapt their equipment and environment to their own use. While the term human engineering does not, then, represent a new field of human endeavor, it does reflect a recent shift in emphasis in the area of endeavor that the term represents. Specifically, this shift in emphasis has been in the direction of placing greater reliance upon systematic research, and reduced reliance upon human experience, as the basis for developing principles to be applied in adapting equipment, work space, and work environments for human use. Although this book is not intended to be a complete handbook of human-engineering data, material from the more important areas will be included. Aside from the presentation of factual information, however, it is hoped that the book may aid in developing an awareness of the importance of human factors in engineering and an appreciation of the potential utility to engineering of research as applied to human beings"--Preface.
